Hi sisters! James Charles here and welcome back to my YouTube channel! Today I’m joined with two very very special guests, Maddie and Kenzie Ziegler, and today we’re doing an episode of Beauty Battles. Just in case you don’t know what a Beauty Battle is, it is a little series that I do here on my channel Where I have two different people, both take half of my face to compete and see who is the better MUA I am so beyond excited! Me and Maddie have actually collabed before Maddie: We have. James: And we actually collabed like one year ago like today Kenzie: Really? Maddie: Yeah. James: Which is yeah so weird, we didn’t even intend for that to happen and it just did, so hello this is our one year collabiversary and then this is my first time ever having Kenz on my channel so we are so excited and this is going to be a good and fresh sister beauty battle. Kenzie: I’m so excited Who do we think is going to win? Maddie: Me, obviously. Hundred percent. *DING* Maddie: We have to like, say what the products are? James: Yeah, be beauty gurus. Kenzie: Wait, what is that? Wait, what is that? So today, we’re taking the Tatcha , the silk cream This primer from Tatcha #notsponsored is incredible Maddie: Yeah James: like 10 out 10 would recommend Maddie: Yeah, I don’t use primer but I got this sent to me and everyone is raving about it, like I’ve seen you rave about it. James: Yeah! Its insane and I don’t like primers, I think they’re so stupid but for some reason, this one… It works, girl! Kenzie: So, what do you put it on with? James: Finger… Kenzie: Oh, okay Maddie: You just dip in with your finger James: Yeah. Maddie: Hands are definitely clean. James: Pfft… I would hope so! Kenzie: Oh no! oh no! James: Ooohh i love this Maddie: Wow, you have really smooth skin. James: Thanks girl! We love a smooth sister! Kenzie: OH MY GOD, okay My best friend and I, we always say stuff like that now because of your videos and stuff. James: I love that Maddie: Every time I walk in, they’re like “we love a something sister” Kenzie: Yeah! It’s literally all we say. James: Don’t you love that my catch phrases have literally become like a international sensation for some stupid reason? Kenzie: Everyone I know says it James: I’ll be like walking down any street or in any store or in any like place ever and I’ll hear like at least five different people like *gasp* “Sister!” from across the room which I think is like so funny to me Maddie: That’s amazing. James: It’s crazy. Maddie: This is your go to right? James: Yes Maddie: This one of my favourite foundations James: It’s the best. Kenzie: OH SAME! Maddie: That’s quite tan but that will match James: It will match the spray tan . Kenzie: We love a spray tan sister . James: We definitely don’t love a flashback Mary, sister Maddie: I actually have to ask this, Kenzie: Yeah I don’t know the story behind that, Maddie: Oh my God, what! Do you live under a rock? James: Thank you, yeah. First of all, wow Kenz. Kenzie: I’m sorry I’m sorry. Maddie: No but like, seriously were you that white or was that edited. James: No! Oh so you don’t know the story either! Maddie: No I know the story but, Kenzie: yeah what! Maddie: but like every photo I look at I’m like theres no way you were that white James: I wasn’t that white I was in Boston doing a meet and greet and I took a picture with a fan Her name is Pam I still follow her on twitter today Maddie: Hi Pam, James: Hey Pam, Kenzie: Hey Pam James: and uhh She was far darker skin than I was So when you take a photo with contrasting skin tones Automatically the person with lighter skin tone would look way lighter when your taking it with the flash because of like the light balance of the camera I don’t really know how it works. And then she always puts a filter on her photos that make it even brighter. So I did look like kinda gray in the photo and I definitely did have flashbacks but the picture that went viral people completely desaturated and made me white So I was not that white but I definitely was not looking too hot. Maddie: Right, it makes it better that you were that white. James: the orginial photo was bad, but not like THAT bad, you know? Maddie:My side looks better already. – Kenzie: Well… ok ok You gotta give me credit here, you’re way better… She’s way better at makeup than me . -Maddie: At foundation? James: Literally it’s just applying foundation Maddie: You know, I was watching your videos, I sound like a fan, well, I kinda am. Um… and you don’t pull it out all the way anymore, you kinda like to keep it.. James: Wow that was like a recent video that I have on my channel .Maddie: I know, cause I watch your videos! James: I love that you keep up with me. It’s always really cool to me when people I consider close friends talk to me about my videos because like we’re busy like we’re crazy busy, like today so far, I’ve already had 3 meetings this morning, I had to go shopping for my Coachella outfit I had 2 business calls and then I took a shower I had to shave my entire body to get ready for Coachella and I had a fitting today too that I already forgot about. Maddie: He literally has Nair on his table. James: It just means a lot that like people like us are able to like take out their time and really like support their friends like i think its really dope. Maddie – of course Maddie – Its important to support your friends. Youre really funny aswell like Your videos are really funny James – Oh thanks tell me more Well sister Kenzie speaking of youtube You miss girly thang are in a new youtube show.

So, we’re just gonna, um- Maddie: What do you mean, ‘You don’t know how to bake?’. Kenzie: I… remember? We went through this…on…when I did your makeup. I really don’t know how to do it. Maddie: I’m just scared for the nose… snatch. Y’know? James: Well, I think- you have to have faith Faith, trust, and a little bit of- Maddie: pixie dust. James:Translucent powder dust. Kenzie:umm, you see I don’t really know how to do this. We’re just gonna go for it. Maddie:Ok. Yeah, I’m not gonna help you, because I feel like…y’know…we’re at a…we’re in a competition. and I wanna win. We used to compete against each other our whole lives. So, it’s actually really nice to not have to compete against one another anymore. Cause like, I took more of the acting, and she’s taking more of the singing. Kenzie:Well, now I’m doing acting. So… Maddie: Well, yeah, you know what I mean. Like, if we Kenzie:N-n-no, yeah, I totally get it cause I have the singing and you have, like, the, you, you’re more dancer though.
